    After reading all the different reviews saying how original and out-there Menomena were I was expecting something exciting and new. What's so original about this? They sound just like every other indie rock band i've ever heard with a little Beach Boys thrown in on the last track. Give me a break.

    This could be the second half of Menomena's debut. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.81]

    The combination of thundering drums with whimsical vocals and melodies can be charming, insanely catchy and headache-inducing, sometimes all at once. [Feb 2007, p.114]
  3. Friend and Foe follows through on the potential of their unique sound, proving their wildly great debut was no fluke.
